Emeryville, CA—Innovative Interfaces, the leader in information technology for libraries, announced that four academic libraries have recently chosen to install its Millennium library automation system.
Azusa Pacific University in Azusa, California, will install Millennium in February 2003, migrating from their GEAC Advance system. Founded in 1899, it is an evangelical Christian institution that carries the distinction of being the first Bible college on the west coast. The unified catalog contains more than 175,000 volumes, media items, periodical titles, and more than 650,000 microforms.
Chatham College in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, will install Millennium in January 2003. They will be migrating from their Gaylord Galaxy system. Founded in 1869, Chatham College's library serves 950 students with a collection of over 90,000 monographs, 1,000 journal subscriptions, and numerous electronic resources.
Simpson College and Graduate School in Redding, California, will replace their CDMS/Datatel system with Millennium in February 2003. Serving a student population of 2,000, the Start-Kilgour Memorial Library is a 9,200 square foot facility housing more than 70,000 volumes. Special collections include books on art and Christianity.
Trevecca Nazarene University in Nashville, Tennessee, will replace its Sirsi Classic system with Millennium. The new, ten million-dollar Waggoner Library opened two years ago, featuring state-of-the-art-technology and triple the amount of space from the previous library. "The current library automation system was not updated during construction and has become outdated and inefficient," said Esther Swink, Director of Library Services at Trevecca Nazarene University. "After several months of reviewing literature, witnessing demonstrations, and engaging in evaluation and discussion, the library faculty selected Innovative's Millennium as the best quality product that would meet our needs."
"We are very pleased that four-year colleges continue to choose Millennium, reinforcing the fact that Innovative's ILS possesses the flexibility to suit the needs of libraries differing in size and specialty," said Leslie Straus, Innovative's Vice President of Worldwide Sales.
